    Default 57er LW Bomber clasp with "500" pendant............

    Gentleman, my 1957 replacement Luftwaffe Bomber clasp, gold grade with attached pendant for "500" flights....made by St u L, an early version from 1957-1960, notice the small "o" only stamped on the rear of the clasp, some say a quality control indicator, but I am still not 100% convinced, but a pointer that identify's the award as a St u L product...... it sports a second pattern (first pattern being the "Star" variety) pendant for "500" flights is attached, numbered pendants were introduced in April 1944, commencing with a "200" with increments of 100.....culminating in Rudel's pendant of "2000" !!
    Notice the central "winged bomb" device on the clasp is a separately applied piece attached to the die stamped outline of its self, later clasps, post 1968 were all one piece with central design part of the die and painted black.........these clasps are being faked !
    Prost ! Steve.
